Join Catalyst Sports Asheville for an exhilarating Adaptive Mountain Bike (aMTB) Group Ride on Sunday, June 23, 2024, at the Gateway Trails in Old Fort! Nestled in the picturesque mountains of Western North Carolina, the Gateway Trails offer a diverse network of trails suitable for riders of all levels. From flowy singletrack to challenging technical sections, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Please note that the ride is weather dependent. Additionally, the parking lot at Gateway Trails is gravel, but there is an accessible pit toilet conveniently located on site. So, come prepared for a day of adventure and camaraderie as we explore the stunning trails and soak in the natural beauty of the area.
